Concurrent session

We often see older, skinny goats in our herds and think of it as “old age”.  However, many of these goats have diagnosable diseases that can be controlled in your herd through specific management decisions. Knowing what different diseases to look for and how to make appropriate culling decisions for these goats will improve our personal herds and the industry as a whole.  In this presentation, join Dr. Talia Fletcher as she discusses some common signs, causes, treatments and prevention of weight loss in adult goats.
